Unfortunately for Kristen Stewart, it appears her ex-boyfriend and former “Twilight” co-star, Robert Pattinson, has officially moved on. The 28-year-old British film star is reportedly moving back across the pond to be closer to his new leading lady and fellow UK native singer FKA Twigs, the Daily Mail is reporting.
“She is behind Rob’s decision to move back,” a source told Grazia magazine of FKA Twigs' (real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett) thoughts on Pattinson’s plans to return to the UK.
According to the tabloid, the actor is serious about his relationship with the 26-year-old “Two Weeks” singer. Their romance, first revealed in September, comes a little over one year after his split from Stewart, 24. While Pattinson came across as indifferent while addressing his split from the "Twilight" star with Esquire UK in July, their breakup, which occurred after she was allegedly caught cheating with her then-married “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, appears to have had a stronger effect on Pattinson than he originally let on.
“They are really happy, and he seems keen to make a fresh start away from the mutual circles he shared with his ex-girlfriend Kristen in L.A.,” a source told the Daily Mail. "They’ve both got busy schedules but they’re planning to move to London together in the foreseeable future.”
Pattinson’s rumored plan to relocate comes just one month after he confessed his desire to leave Hollywood during an interview with the Independent.
“I think I need to spend more time in London or just move around a bit more. I’ve been in L.A. for six or seven years now or something, and it’s weird,” Pattinson said while promoting his Los Angeles-based film, “Maps to the Stars.” “The more you stay there, especially as an actor, the more you think you need to be there, that you’ll be missing out on something by leaving, but you are not really."
Us Weekly reports that FKA (“formerly known as") Twigs and Pattinson met through mutual friends. The duo, who were first photographed together in New York City on Aug. 27, reportedly bonded over their mutual love of music.
While Pattinson appears to have moved on, Stewart is rumored to have also found at least one new partner in recent months. Recent reports have speculated that the actress has been dating her “Equals" co-star, actor Nicholas Hoult, and her former assistant and longtime female pal, Alicia Cargile.
